the "Zagat" guide
I'm with Lauren. Superfluous quotation marks make me giggle. What's with "chocolate" cake. Is it allegedly chocolate? Imitation chocolate? Or -- worse yet -- carob?!
I got the Zagat Guide 2008 in the mail yesterday. Apparently, for whatever reason, I decided I needed one. Oh, well.
The "online version" isn't "bad," but the "print" version -- the "hard copy" -- was annoying to read. I understand that the quotes are from "reviewers." In my mind, I'm narrating the guide with "finger quotes" and the word allegedly (but said in a really funny voice) every time I read a fragmented quote. Who knows what these people really said, p.s.! The guide is at home. I'll include an entry tomorrow. Read it with "finger quotes" and be annoyed like I am!
Some of the quotes remind me of that "Friends" episode (quotation marks actually necessary there!) where Joey tries to figure out how to use finger quotes.
I should submit the entire guide to that blog that Lauren found.
Any other opinions on Zagat's "reviews"?
